We can hope so.
Thursday and Friday (morning) saw some serious rain in the area. So much that there were a few road closures and some minor flooding.
As per normal, when it floods, the one back-river road in this area gets closed as it becomes quite dangerous.
Thankfully, it didn’t seem to do widespread major flooding. Heavy rains and a lot of snow melt can do that.
Look how high it got near Fitchs Bridge:
But, as much as the rain and flooding isn’t wanted, it gives some home — that spring is here.
The weather has been better and the temps are on the rise. This upcoming week, according to weather.com, will start out in the high 30s (Monday), creep into the mid-to-upper 40s Tuesday and Wednesday and get into the 50s Thursday. It will come back down into the 40s for the weekend.
The kicker to all of this is, outside of a few showers (30 percent chance) Wednesday, the rest of the week looks sunny.
I’m ready for it. I want to get out and ride my bike (though I need to get it to Oneonta and to the local bike shop to have it tuned up and such) and really start pushing ahead with the Couch-to-5K program (which I slacked a bit on this past week).
Hopefully this weather forecast won’t change (though I am writing this early as I’ll be gone at 5 a.m. Sunday to head to New Jersey for a one-day disc golf tournament) and spring will be here. Hopefully with that in the air, my job hunt will warm up and maybe I can land a few interviews and get back into the work force.
Have a great week!
